Track Name: Madras
Primal connection
An impulse with no direction
Exception to the rule
A fool enough times to realize the high's contrived
No need to wonder why
Wonder why
You say everything in a whisper
Outplay your pain and complain
Refrain from interaction
Satisfaction encased in plastic
I'll admit I'm a little lit, but just a bit
I see fit in this state of mind
I've wasted my time
But you were kind enough to remind me before it became too much to think about
You say anything in a whisper
Replay the day frame by frame
Maybe I was to blame
Maybe the feeling's the same
I don't need to play this game
Track Name: Boneless
Perfect flavour
Tell me what you need
In the darkness
Far from honest
I adore your stance

Brightest heights
Outta sight
Sensation
Grim and near
The stuff I fear
The stuff I hear
Bite the light
Overnight temptation
Lemon lime
These sour times

Grooves go flowing
Ever glowing
Warmth in breath
On a park bench
Burning, intense
Life so bright
This'll last forever

Brightest heights
Outta sight
Sensation
Grim and near
The stuff I fear
The stuff I hear
Bite the light
Overnight temptation
Lemon lime
The day you're mine
Track Name: Creamsicle
You've got a weird sense of humour
Never know what to say
When times go rough
You just want to play
Perfect angel
Good from the start
Soft in the middle
Some bleeding heart
Come march away with me
Me and your thoughts
Don't walk too far, baby
'Cause you'll fall right off

If it's too late
I brought my shadow
Why don't you wait?
In the arms of an ego

Edgy lady, why don't you love me?
Edgy lady, why don't you love me?
Edgy lady, why don't you love me?
Edgy lady, why should you love me?
Edgy lady, how could you love me?

And I wait and wait and wait
For a little break
And I wait, I wait
For a little break
Track Name: Deluxe
Don't you start
Like another
Oh yeah
I know those eyes
Dark brown
Of all my wildest dreams
I remember
The sweet drops of ginger

Livin' in the world today
I praise the day when you stepped my way (step my way)
And I don't even have to say
I just don't know how no more
Give it a couple of hours
With the lights turned out

I thought I was safe here
I knew it would be better than before
I know that I'm safe here
Right here in your arms

Stole my heart
Sweetest lover
Cinnamon and sugar
I take it you'd like to stay in tonight
Well, that's alright
Let's indulge in the special things we like

Love in this world today
Sway
Back and fourth forever
Let me tell you
On the bed I lay
Then you burst right through the door
Gave it a couple of minutes
Then the lights turn out
Track Name: Salt
Solid stare
From across the bed
Pull your weight tonight
'Cause you're crying out
What's it all about?
Swing your hips all in

Will we ever win?
Or just lose?
Confused by the chance of two
She's in light blue
Now
I take the leap
And fall flat on my feet
I won't repeat what's not concrete

Wilting down
At the end of the season
Summertime was fine
With youth in my mind
Every single time
I'm confined
Standing in line

I'm waiting on the day
To sit down
When I say "no"
I mean "no"
You see
I don't want to lead you on
I feel I was on fire

How long now?
How long now?
It never ends
Until it's done
And I matter today
And I'm okay
In this time
In this day

The night grows colder
I'll get older
Track Name: Blasted
It's nothing to worry about
So, I'm sorry if you're in doubt
It's best just to throw me out
I wanna be your man

Ribbons of red flowin' through the air
A touch of blue decides to join in
Seems to me this party's turnin' up alright
I promised I wouldn't put up a fight
Tonight I just might

It's nothing to worry about
So, I'm sorry if you're in doubt
It's best just to throw me out
I gotta be your man

Stare myself
In the mirror
'Cause I gotta get my mind all right
I mean the heart
It wants what it wants
Day after day
I don't mean to fight the feelin'
Walk through the back door
In hopes of passing you by
Although
I think I had a little too much tonight
I think I might just pass out right in front of you

It's something to ask about
So I hope you're not heading out
There's gold pouring out of your mouth
We should maybe make plans
Yes or no?
Track Name: Gum
Over your streets
I have known nothing seeps
Through the holes in your teeth
Where stuff's mostly bleak
And I want to be the one
Who can pull your soul right out your skull
And make you breathe out

Say it faster
Say it better, baby
Just say it faster
Yeah, you got it
Say it faster
Say it better, baby
You're doing great
You're doing fine
Someone saying something nice to you?
Now, you better say something better right back
Someone saying something nice to you?
Now, you better say something back
Do you know where you're going, baby?
Do you walk straight every time?
Do you know where you're going, baby?
Do this all night
Someone saying something nice to you?
You better say something nice right back
Someone saying something nice to you?
Now, yeah
You better saying something right now
And it's true
I love you
And it's true
I love you so bad
Track Name: Navy
Put your time on a plate
Let your worries eat away, everyday
But don't you let me stop doing what I do best
All your parking spots have been taken
Now you know better
The right side of your face is melting

And I brush my hair
And I shine my shoes
And I think a while
About bustin' loose
Outta here
Out here
Out
